Rotary seeks applicants for educational trip to Australia

TERRE HAUTE — Rotary clubs in southern Indiana are accepting applications for a Group Study Exchange educational trip to Melbourne, Australia, from Feb. 22 to March 24, 2014.

Four non-Rotarian professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 will accompany Rotary team leader Mike Ferree of the Columbus Rotary Club to Australia, according to a press release.

For an application, contact Nancy Rogers, president, Rotary Club of Terre Haute, at

edu. Applications also are available at the Rotary District 6580 website: Completed applications are due no later than Nov. 30.  

The four team members will shadow Australians who work in their professions, and they will visit cultural and sightseeing attractions. They will stay as guests in the homes of Australian Rotarians.

Candidates must:

•  be between the ages of 25 and 40 at the time of their selection.

• be employed fulltime.

• plan to remain in the workforce after the exchange so that the travel experience will have a significant impact on their professional careers.

• be employed or reside in the Southern Indiana Rotary district.

• not be a Rotarian or related to a Rotarian.

• be willing to promote cross-cultural understanding and goodwill.

Applicants with education and healthcare backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply, but all vocations are welcome.  

GSE team members will be selected at a mandatory weekend retreat Dec. 7-8 at Bradford Woods near Martinsville.

Rotary is a worldwide service organization of business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians in more than 34,000 clubs located in more than 200 countries.
